Being left out stinks! I mean really it does. I have struggled with this aspect of my life for years. I do not like being left out. Especially when you know should have been included. You feel me? It just stinks.
Last week, I found out that it happened. I won’t go into detail, because does that really matter?! The details that hurt me. No! I would love to out the people that hurt me and scream ” YOU HURT ME! HOW DARE YOU?!” But you know what? It would not do anyone any good.
How do you get over it? Do you say something? How do you approach it? I have just learned that at times you have to move on. I used to fight the battles. I mean really fight them. I learned at times with some people, it doesn’t matter. They will continue to do the same thing that they want to because it suits them. Walking the road of Christianity is hard. I want to wallow in my hurt, self-pity and denial. God doesn’t allow me to do that for very long. I am called to love everyone. Say what?! Yeah love at all times. 1 Corinthians 10:24 ” No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.” Well, you say that isn’t about love. Your right, but let me tell you there are a lot of bible verses about love. 1 John 4:10 “This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”
I am sure I am not the only person who is struggling to get rid of the hurt caused by someone else, but we are called to do it. If you aren’t a Christian, you life will be shorten by not doing it. You are giving away your power to the person. I am still working on my issues with it. It will never be easy, but with God on by my side, I can never go wrong.
